Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the sunny, warm, windy island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Monday morning, the seventh day of November, 2011, a spectacular day on Cape, as I just returned from an amazing walk at the ocean’s edge, along that ‘Sound of Nantucket’, with a warm breeze blowing in from the south, calm seas and abundant sunshine, feeling more like an early spring day than the seventh day of November…but, hey, we will take it! Yes, the leaves are turning all sorts of colors in these here parts, and that means it is coming up on Thanksgiving, one of most beloved holidays of the year in the United States, as WE all gather together at the collective table of bounty and give thanks for all of our blessings, blessings that come from a much greater source than either one of US can comprehend. As WE look forward to that day, one can only shake one’s collective head at the state of this great land of OURS, wondering what happened to the land WE once knew and loved, with many, including this humble reporter, still very, very much in the camp of Hope that it may just turn a corner, returning to sanity and civility once again… From the echoes of discontent, by way of ‘Occupying the space‘, bouncing off of the concrete canyons of New York City, emanating from the mouths of literal babes in the woods of OUR times, screaming out for social Justice, income equality and a general fairness reintroduced to a system that has CLEARLY favored the most fortunate among US, to the quiet stillness of nature itself, the two polar opposites that exist today so prominently in the American psyche, with most never being able to turn off the constant flow of information, the majority of it needless, WE must, for our own sakes, take a step back this Thanksgiving and ponder what really matters and what does not. It seems rather obvious, when you look at it, really look at ‘it’, for Jesus himself said… ‘Look at the Lilies in the field, see that they do not toil, or spin…?’, going on to say that if whatever you ‘believe’ God to be, provides enough water, food and space for these miracles of nature to bloom, thus, proving how much ‘he’ loves them, then how much do you ‘think’ he loves us, ALL of US? Food for thought on this late Monday morning, hope you have a wonderful week ahead and should you have the spare dime, perhaps Google OXFAM or savethechildren.org, offering some help to those millions suffering in Eastern Africa right now, with many women and children in dire need of food, water and medical care. Thank you. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
